Unintentionally Funny Signs
Description:
This category is to waymark permanent signs or markers that didn't intend to be funny, but because of their context (a word combination, or the specific location where the sign is placed) the sign takes on a second, humorous meaning.

JUST A DOUBLE MEANING OF A WORD IN THE SIGN IS NOT ENOUGH! THERE MUST BE SOMETHING CONTEXTUAL THAT BRINGS THAT DOUBLE MEANING TO MIND. SEE EXPANDED DESCRIPTION FOR EXAMPLES.

in Unintentionally Funny Signs

I've heard of turtle doves, but never a turtle duck. The words on the lower sign either disagree with the picture as to what is crossing, or the message refers to two separate species that are prone to cross here.

Unintentionally Funny SignsNo Urinating in Vapor, Please -- Hot Springs, AR

in Unintentionally Funny Signs

A reasonable request, as urinating in vapor just seems rude to us Southerners. Unfortunately, the old schoolyard rule "He who smelt it, dealt it" would probably not apply here, due to the sheer volume of emissions.

German can be difficult even for native speakers. But I think the message is clear no matter what the sign says.

Texas Historical Marker denoting a rather ironic name for an undertaker. No, they weren't trying to cheer us up, they were named "Laughter." Today, the North Funeral Home occupies this site at 242 Orange St, Abilene, TX.

As it appears just looking at the sign, someone doesn't want you to go to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The sign indicates that Coeur d'Alene is to the left, using the left lane. It then indicates that there is no turning left.
